Welcome to the City of Coral Gables Fire Department homepage. Please take the time to review the many services we provide to the community. I hope you find this website both informative and interesting.
Our department consists of 129 fire personnel (>90% paramedics), 18 administrative personnel and 3 fire stations that cover an area of 14 square miles with approximately 43,000 residents. Our commitment to the community allows our residents and visitors requesting our services to have the expectations that they will receive a timely response, by well trained and professional firefighters. Our personnel pride themselves on delivering our services to the residents and visitors of “The City Beautiful” in a courteous, expedient, and exceptional manner. The Fire Department continues to move forward in a consistent and efficient manner. We are always seeking innovative methods to meet the Department’s operational goals and financial needs.
Some important achievements by the Coral Gables Fire Department include being a Class One ISO rated fire department and nationally recognized CFAI Accredited agency. Additionally, we have participated in the State of Florida’s Emergency Medical Clinical Conference and Competition (ClinCon), the Firefighters’ Combat Challenge, numerous extrication competitions, including the International Extrication Competition in Scotland (2000), and the World Extrication Championship in Africa (2001) where we won the World Championship.
In the future, we will continue to adapt our service delivery model to meet the dynamic challenges we face at the dawn of the 21st century. Our commitment to excellence is only surpassed by our enthusiasm to serve the residents and visitors of our great City. If you wish to schedule a visit to one of our stations or are in need of one of the many services we provide, we hope you will give us a call or stop in to see us.
